BRAKE ROTOR REMOVAL

2000 Mercury Cougar

Brakes problem
2000 Mercury Cougar 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 83,000 miles

I am currently changing the Front Brake Rotors on my 2000 Mercury Cougar. I just bought the car and dont think they have ever been changed. THESE ROTORS WILL NOT COME OFF! I have been wailing on it with a hammer for hours. I have soaked them in Liquid Wrench. There are no visable screws or bolts holding it on. The rotors are odd looking with a stamped ring of different metel around the inside. I think they are factory stamped. Does anyone know how these come off? I have done rotors many time and never had this kind of trouble.

I have a 2001 and it took my brother in law 2hrs to finally get the rotors off. He says a lot of rust? Like you he just kept hitting with the hammer and they finally came off.
